Hello all,

I have both copies of Abbott's Encyclopedia of Rope Magic, Volume 1 and 2. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these books and if you believe there are better books out there or if these are classic with great effects.

Morjhana (your name reminds me of something, but I'm not sure what)
I have the Abbotts encyclopedia of rope tricks vol 1, I have the Stewart James encyclopedia of rope tricks, I have the Karl Fulves self-working rope magic book, and I have Daryl's three DVD set expert rope magic made easy. I highly recommend all of these sources, because they each have stuff in them that the others don't have.

The Stewart James Encyclopedia of Rope Tricks is a compilation of Abbotts Vol 1, 2, & 3, but you will probably have a hard time finding vol 3.

Al you have a 60's mind. And I'm not talking about magic.

The encyclopedia of rope tricks stewart james is great. All book mentioned are going to do the job. One thing I found helped is Darlys DVD set on rope magic. The book is great but I just found it hard to pictuer but darlys DVD helped.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

I was 15 years old in 1960, ans 25 years old in 1970. That decade was my time.

And time for other things as well, hey Al.

What is the difference between The Stewart James version of The Encyclopedia of rope tricks at 450+ pages
and The Abbott version of The Encyclopedia of rope tricks at 400 pages in the hardbound edition?

Was new material added?

When someone askes a rope magic question I usually jump right in, even if someone asked the same question 6 months ago, and thank God my answers are consistent.
